- ' The competitive plumber who refuses to be drawn into the lobby
, of the trust finds that he is compelled to pay as much as 60 per cent
.'si more for his material from the wholesalers. A bid which he makes

EverV bid, every contract let,' every estimate furnished by any
of the plumping firms m Portland that belong to this secret trust
must first pass muster before the protective association. For a citize
of Portland to obtain several. estimates on prospective work from as
many plumbing firms in the Jbopes of benefiting by the apparent

quest for an estimate the wholesale crafting begins,"? ;' 3

s heaped the stipulated graft assessment demanded by the protective
association and which each, member agrees to extract from its pros-
pective customers as soon as membership in the trust is secured.
